Tchórze, cz.II

tchorze U tchórzy występuje dymorfizm płciowy, samce mają dużo masywniejszą budowę, są większe i cięższe. Dojrzałość płciową zwierzęta te osiągają w wieku 9-10 miesięcy. Ruja występuje najczęściej w marcu lub kwietniu i trwa 3-5 dni. U tchórzy hodowlanych w okresie letnim występuje druga ruja. Dwukrotne występowanie cyklu płciowego tchórze hodowlane odziedziczyły po fretce, gdyż u tchórzy dzikich ruja pojawia się tylko raz w roku. Samice tchórzy hodowlanych w porównaniu z norkami i lisami pospolitymi cechują się wysoką płodnością i plennością. Po ciąży trwającej średnio 42 dni rodzą od 1 do 18 młodych w jednym miocie, średnio 8 sztuk. Największą plennością odznaczają się samice dwuletnie...

Immunoreactivity to galanin in the small intestine of wild boars

Discovered in 1983 by Tatemoto et al. (48), galanin is a 29- or 30-amino acids long and C-terminally amidated multipotent neuropeptide. Galanin is relatively phylogenetically old, and in mammals the N-terminus of this neuropeptide has a highly conserved sequence of the first 15 amino acids (39). The galanin precursor molecule of 123-amino acid length, preprogalanin, is composed of a signal molecule, mature peptide and galanin message associated peptide (26). The signal peptide is removed from the preprogalanin by an enzymatic cleavage between the 23 and 24 amino acids (40). Immunohistochemisty and in situ hybrydization revealed that galanin and galanin mRNA are widely distributed in the central (29, 38, 42) and peripheral nervous system, including the sensory dorsal root ganglia (DRG) of pigs (31) and other mammals (37, 55). At the central level galanin acts as potent orexigenic peptide and regulates food intake, increases body weight and plays a key role in energy expenditure (for a review see 12). Combined immunohistochemical and retrograde tracing studies showed that galanin-immunoreactive (IR) sensory neurons of DRG supply numerous internal organs of the gastro-intestinal tract (8, 23, 35, 41) and urogenital (1, 22, 28, 32). Expression patterns of galanin in the gut has been studied in most laboratory (9, 13) and domestic mammals (7, 33, 35, 51, 52), as well as humans (15, 20). However, over the past three decades studies on the galanin-ergic component of the enteric nervous system (ENS) of wildlife animals have attracted relatively low attention. Therefore in the present study, the expression pattern of galanin was immunohistochemically studied in cryostat sections and whole mount preparations of wild boar small intestines. In order to elucidate whether in the duodenum, jejunum and ileum of wild boars galanin is co-expressed with neuropeptide Y (NPY), vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) double immunohistochemical stainings were applied...

Associations between different degrees of lameness in early lactation and fertility of dairy cows

Lameness is a common production-disease syndrome in intensive dairy production. The high incidence (54.6 new cases/100 cows) and prevalence (20.6 per cent) of lameness cause serious economic problems and welfare implications (4, 13). The most common causes of lameness in dairy cows include sole ulcers, white line lesions and digital dermatitis (12, 20). An important environmental component in foot lesion development for cows in early lactation is connected with physical stressors associated with housing (3). The association of stress and pain with lameness has an adverse effect on fertility in dairy cows (5, 12, 15, 16, 26). Lameness in cows during the early postpartum period has been associated with a higher incidence of ovarian cysts and a lower ovarian activity, and consequently a lower likelihood of pregnancy and lower fertility than in the case of non-lame cows (1, 8, 14, 16, 19, 25). Hoof lesions in cows, such as sole ulcers or white line lesions, result in significant differences in calving to first service and calving to conception intervals when compared with healthy cows (15). Another study demonstrated that the time from calving to conception was significantly longer in lame cows with multiple lesions in comparison to healthy cows (11). Time from calving to conception is similar in cows classifield as non-lame, moderately lame or lame. In cows with different degrees of lameness during the first 8 weeks of postpartum the calving to conception interval varied, but the difference are not significant (10). Mastitis and lameness occurring during lactation have significant effects on open days and the number of artificial inseminations per conception (28). The probability of culling cows increases in those who have difficult births, when twins are born or have shorter days to first insemination, or longer days to conception ...[full text in English...]

Nutritional well-being of sheep under free-range grazing system
on natural dry grasslands

Dry grasslands are seen as having a high natural value. They fall under the Habitats Directive of the European Union and they are areas of nature protection. Therefore, the lack of active management of these areas, leading to land abandonment and consequently to biological degradation, is in contradiction to the Directive. A year-round grazing system proves to be the most efficient management practice for the active conservation of valuable natural dry grasslands. Sheep, because of their body size and modest nutritional requirements, are highly valued in conservation grazing programs. However, the nutritional value of a dry grassland sward varies greatly, which produces a number of adverse effects in sheep, especially regarding appropriate energy-protein balance in animal diet (1, 6). Then, the nutritional well-being of managed sheep is likely to be disturbed, which requires supplementary feeding of animals. The aim of the present study was to determine the amount and quality of forage intake by sheep grazing on natural pastures located on protected areas of dry grasslands of diverse floristic composition throughout the entire vegetative season. The relationship between forage intake and animal well-being ...[full text in English...]

Pferde Osteopathie

pferdeosteopathie Osteopatia jest terapią manualną, nauką i nurtem terapeutycznym opartym na holistycznej koncepcji ciała jako jedności. Została zapoczątkowana przez dr A.T.Stilla w USA pod koniec XIX wieku i znalazła wielu zwolenników i naśladowców. Obecnie wciąż się rozwija i jest niewątpliwie w pierwszym szeregu dziedzin medycyny alternatywnej w Europie i Ameryce Północnej. Książka wydana w języku niemieckim to kolejne, trzecie wydanie znanej wersji „Osteopatii koni” z roku 2003 i 2010. Autorzy, małżeństwo Brigitte i Walter Salomon są znanymi twórcami wielu książek z dziedziny kinezyto- i fizjoterapii oraz metod leczenia wywodzących się z Tradycyjnej Medycyny Chińskiej (TCM)...
